In this video, dog trainer and behaviourist Ian Dunbar explains how to use food as a reward in dog training and how to phase it out so you don't always need treats.

Do you have a dog that is not food motivated? Are you finding training difficult without using food as a reward?

In this video, Dr Dunbar explains some of his top tips for getting through these issues and also the best ways to start to phase out the use of food during training onto things like hand signals.

Ian explains the things that can be used instead of food as a reward, by recognising the 'lifestyle rewards' for your dog and explaining how to use these far more effective tools instead.
